I just upgraded from IE6.0 to IE8.0. When I tried to run the browser it would not run. I had to right click on the Desktop icon and had to run IE8.0 without add-ons. My question now is how do I manage the add-ons so that I can start IE8.0 from the Desktop icon? I tried to install Flash, and I am also not able to do that. Help?

TY,

I would just ditch IE 8 and use Firefox. Much more safer, a lot more customable, and more secure *less security flaws for now*

Who said I couldn't have everything?

Well, running it without Add-on's is a clue.. Perhaps you need to delete some add-ons that may be conflicting each other, not allowing the computer to operate IE 8.
